GUIRALDELLI, Reginaldo. Work, workers and the social issue in the capitalist sociability. Cad. psicol. soc. trab. [online]. 2014, vol.17, n.1, pp.101-115. ISSN 1516-3717.

This essay, through literature review, analyzes ongoing societal transformations affecting the world of work and life in society, besides provoking the worsening of the social issue, understood as resulting from the contradictions between capital and labor. Generally, taking into account the accumulation of knowledge produced in the field of social and human sciences on this subject, it is presented elements about the changes triggered in the world of work and its reflections to the workers in times of crisis of the capital.  One of the consequences of these transformations are the intensification and the expansion of precarious forms of work, the increase of pauperism, the advancement of unemployment, informality, subcontracting, poverty and the loss of social rights. This framework outlines, for the whole working class, through organizations and collective struggles, challenges aimed at overcoming the capitalist sociability.

Keywords : Work; Workers; Social Issue; Capitalism.
